This roundtable is sponsored by UCI's Conversations on Writing and Public Life Series, History Department, Literary Journalism Program, and Center for Asian Studies, and is linked to a 5:30-7pm event, in the same room, that will focus on Evan Osnos's just-published The Age of Ambition: Chasing Fortune, Truth, and Faith in the New China (a Publisher's Weekly "books of the week" selection, which will be available for purchase and signing). Both events are free and open to the public.
